Negotiating a consent order to avoid contested final hearing

Corey acted for the Husband at a hearing to obtain both parties’ signatures to an agreed consent order for court approval, where the Wife was acting as litigant in person

The draft order was not agreed, and the Judge urged the parties to discuss and agree an order to avoid a contested final hearing. With Corey’s support, negotiations at court between his client and the Wife led to agreement and an amended consent order, which the court approved.
